You might remember some time ago a wonderful anonymous blog reader sent me two packages in the mail. They were full of UFOs and quilt leftovers. I’ve had the very best time with them. THANKS a million, times over.
One of the items in the box was what turned out to be, this quilt! The big blocks were all done. The borders were all sewn. There were a couple blocks that needed to ripped out and resewn but for the most part, the pieces were all there. At the time, I had no idea how to assemble the piece but a blog reader let me know the quilt was from this book, Kindred Spirits by Yellow Creek Quilt Designs. You can find it HERE on Amazon.
The quilt only needed assembling after I fixed those couple of blocks. The person who donated it did 95% of the work to make the top. Isn’t the color selection great?? I’m so impressed with her work!! Check it out…
At the time the quilt came to me, it came with this border but it was all just mixed with other orphan blocks and quilt leftovers so I didn’t know the pieces went together. Thankfully the quilt book gave me a picture so I could assemble it! The person also sent extra fabric for sashing, the inner border, and the binding. What a treat!!
I so admire her work…I had a blog reader offer to purchase this quilt. I intended it to be for the Firemen’s Fundraiser in March but then I got thinking I could sell it and give the money to the Fire Department and then make another quilt for the Fire Department. Hmm. Does anyone have any suggestions about that? Also, what would be a fair price for the quilt? I’d love any suggestions on this.
Think this would be a great quilt to do as a monthly sampler. You could make one set of blocks each month.
I know reproduction prints aren’t as popular as they once were but man, I still love them. I think it’s likely because I like antiques and the quilts go so well with them.
As I was taking pictures I had a little helper sneak into the photos. It’s Rosie.
She almost matches the quilt. HA!!
I went out early in the morning to take pictures but the lighting was bad. I ended up leaving the quilt hanging and came out two hours later. The sun had shifted enough that the lighting was good and I could snap pictures. So…I had my own mini quilt showing!!
I had lots of fun finishing up this quilt. THANKS again to the generous blog reader who sent it my way.
